Protein is one of the three macronutrients needed in our everyday diet, along with fats and carbohydrates. Because protein is used by the body for muscle synthesis, it is essential for maintaining lean body mass for endurance athletes whose muscle tissues are broken down during exercise. Protein also helps with feeling satiated, making it easy to control hunger and cravings.
Health Canada recommends that an 18 year-old adult should consume 0.8g of protein per kg of body weight each day. For the athletic population, protein intake should range higher, about 1.2-2g per kg of body weight. For example, an athletic adult weighing 70 kg should eat between 84-140 grams of protein each day. It can be difficult to find quality sources of protein to fulfill our everyday needs, which is why Näak energy bars contain the best source of protein: crickets!Näak energy bars carry 6-7 grams of protein in each bar, which comes from cricket powder! The advantage of including cricket powder is that, unlike plant-based protein, it is a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids your body needs. Additionally, cricket powder contains high amounts of vitamin B12, iron, antioxidants, and more. Learn more about all the nutrients crickets contain here!
Less than 200 calories:
A calorie is a unit of measure of energy, specifically the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by one degree Celsius. We need calories, which we get from food, to keep our bodies functioning. Calorie requirements vary from person to person depending on height, weight, age, gender, and activity level. You can approximate your daily needs here.
You can divide your daily caloric intake as you desire, but typically, a healthy snack should contain anywhere between 150-300 calories, as snacks are not your main meal. At less than 200 calories per bar, a Näak energy bar is ideal as a filling snack between meals or after training.
